Monkey and hunter

Aim the cannon directly at the monkey with the laser sight when the monkey is held up high on the magnetic holder. When the ball leaves the cannon, the monkey should drop. The ball will hit the monkey since they fall at the same rate. There are 3 settings for speed of the ball, which can be used. A lower velocity means each falls at greater distance before hitting, but it does every time.
